LONDON — Silver Bullet Films has become the first Romanian production company to open an office in London.
The company hopes to take advantage of the surge of interest in Romanian locations following the filming of Anthony Minghella’s “Cold Mountain” there.
The London office will be headed by veteran Brit publicist Gerry Buckland. Silver Bullet is owned by Romanian cinematographer Viorel Sergovici.
“We have everything you need to make quality movies and commercials,” Sergovici said. “There are incredible locations, experienced crews, a state-of-the-art Kodak Cinelab, excellent hotels and transportation, a flexible and innovative approach to work and, most importantly, a positive, professional, can-do attitude.
“Our aim is to provide excellent service to the production industry at minimal cost,” he added. “Based on the growing interest Silver Bullet Film has already received from British producers, we decided that opening the first Romanian production company office in the U.K. should be part of that service.”
Buckland said, “Producers who have previously worked in Budapest and Prague have been impressed with the top quality and competitive costs of Silver Bullet facilities in Bucharest.”
